In addition to the week 2 estimates from Europe, we have some official and unofficial Sonic Lost World sales data from Japan to share with you from launch week.

According to VGChartz, which is not considered an official data compiler, Lost World on Wii U sold a shave above 2,300 units in Japan during launch week.  But on the Nintendo 3DS, Lost World pulled more than double that amount, selling more than 5,000 units.

The good news is that we have some official data to compare this information to–but the news there isn’t good.  According to Dengeki, the official data shows just 2,067 units of Lost World on Wii U were sold, lower than the VGChartz estimate.  No information on 3DS sales was available.

Meanwhile, the VGChartz website estimates that Lost World on the whole has sold more than 20,000 units so far.  That does not include the US, where data is not available yet.  Once that data is in, we will bring it to you–just keep in mind the VGChartz information is a guide, and nothing more.
